|GBACG was a
lively presence at this year's Baycon. Jana Keeler and Eleanor Farrell
had a very appreciative audience for their workshop on The Fine Art
of Stage Presentation. Hopefully, we'll see some of the audience
members in upcoming Masquerades.
Panelists Agnes Gawne, Danine Cozzens, Vanessa Schnatmeier and Philip Rayment brought what they swore wasonly a small portion of their personal libraries to their session, If You Thought Regency Was Only Romance, You're Wrong! The also prepared a very useful bibliography given out to attendees. Other panels included Costuming Without Cloth and and a very popular panel with Sarah Goodman.
The Saturday night Masquerade was small but, included some out-of-competition pieces by local costumers. These extra pieces filled out the show nicely. Denisen Fraser ran the Masquerade. Jay and Aimee Hartlove were co-MCs and both handled the audience vwell. Jana Keeler, Shelley Monson and Kelly Turner judged the Masquerade, along with Janet Wilson Anderson from Costme Guild West in LA.
The GBACG fan table was busy all weekend. We had information on GBACG events and the upcoming CC12. We showed videotapes of the Faerie Tale Masquerade Ball and past Costume Con Masquerades.
The highlight of the weekend for us was Sunday. We had a whole room for our costume display and book signing for te Hugo nominated book, The Costume Maker's Art (Lark Books). It was a huge success with more than a dozen of the book's featured artists present incliding Sha Sha Higby, Jana Keeler, Janet Wilson Anderson, Gary Anderson, Jwlhyfer de Winter, Kevin Roche, Dana MacDermitt, Bruce MacDermott, Robin Lewis, John Carey and Eleanor Farrell.
